american-figure-skater

“the average male figure skater does 3 quads in their free skate” factoid is actually a statistical error. American figure skater Nathan Chen who does 10,000 quads in his free program is an outlier and should not have been counted

SARAH KERRIGAN, PRIMARY ANTAGONIST AND OCCASIONAL PROTAGONIST OF THE “STARCRAFT” FRANCHISE, WAS ORIGINALLY ONLY SUPPOSED TO APPEAR IN ONE LEVEL. AS SHE WAS INITIALLY INTENDED AS A THROWAWAY CHARACTER, HER NAME WAS SELECTED FROM A BIG NEWS STORY AT THE TIME: TONYA HARDING’S ATTACK ON AMERICAN FIGURE SKATER NANCY KERRIGAN. HOWEVER, THE GAME DEVELOPERS GREW ATTACHED TO KERRIGAN AND DECIDED TO EXPAND HER CHARACTER.

however else I feel, I am incredibly proud of how the Americans performed at the Olympics and how graciously they handled themselves.

seriously

every

single

american

figure

skater

made

me

so

fucking

proud.

thank you.

One Is Silver and the Other is Gold by Loslote 

(1,568 I Teen I Complete)  *laura/lydia

While competing at the Winter Olympics, Laura and Lydia finally admit their feelings to each other, discuss them like adult human beings, and go on mature, romantic dates.

Well, actually they fall into bed and have drunken sex because Lydia was upset about placing second in the Olympics. Whatever works.

Team Wolf, Gold Medalists by oceanofchaos 

(1,850 I General I Complete)  *no pairing

Inspired by a video of Ukranian Olympic gymnasts, a skype conversation with the-candy-van, and the fact that derek likes to unnecessarily backflip in and out of scenes.

Werewolves of Teen Wolf as aspiring Olympic gymnastics team, doing somersaults and taking names.

It makes sense, really. No wonder their fights were always choreographed like a goddamn dance scene, they were really just floor routines ineptly adapted for fighting.

Finding Your Discipline by Lesatha 

(3,132 I General I Complete)  *sterek

“You also have nice eyelashes,” Derek whispered, although this was an understatement.

Stiles laughed, and Derek’s chest tightened with pride. For some reason, he liked making the young man laugh.

“What kind of athlete does this make me?” Stiles chuckled.

“A pretty one?”

***

Olympics AU. All the times Derek tried to guess what sport Stiles competed in -based on a very serious study of Stiles’ body- and one time he found out.

Falling And Missing The Ground by Loslote 

(4,945 I Explicit I Complete)  *sterek

Stiles had two favorite things about the Olympic Village: the fruit bowl stocked with condoms with little miniature vaulting tables on the packaging, and the Starbucks stands in the lobbies of every single building and on the corner of every single street. Right now, having to be awake and moving at five-thirty in the goddamn morning after a late night of drinking and dancing with both the men’s and the women’s gymnastics teams, he was especially fond of the Starbuckses.

How To Nail and Olympic Snowboarder in Two Weeks by FeministLyds 

(8,951 I Explicit I WIP)   *sterek

“As soon as Stiles found out that he could skate with the girl he had a massive crush on, he jumped for it.
He figured out much later down the line that he wasn’t quite into Lydia’s type.”

Stiles Stilinski and Lydia Martin are the new pair on the Olympic Ice Dancing team. Stiles already thinks he’s on cloud nine, and so snowboarder Derek Hale must be an angel.

The Way He Skates by Angelwithwingsoffire 

(24,475 I Not Rated I Complete)

This is American figure skater Derek Hale’s fourth Olympics, and likely his last. And all he wants to get is that elusive gold medal. He’s gotten silver in the last three and is hoping to finally get the gold so he can retire happily. Stiles Stilinski is an up an coming skater competing for Canada with a flair for the dramatics and Derek’s main competitor. They should hate each other. But this is the Olympics. Who knows what might happen?

You Can Floor Me Now by MissLouisa 

(59,114 I Explicit I Complete)  *cora/lydia

Cora is going to win Gold at the summer Olympics for diving this year. Maybe even twice.

If she doesn’t get too distracted by a certain redhead on her brother’s gymnastics team.

She’s pretty convinced they’re all going to medal, though.

Sink My Teeth Into You by groffiction 

(69,393 I Explicit I WIP)

AU – Derek Hale is one of the sexiest Alpha’s to be in the Werewolf Olympics, held every four years. Unfortunately after this last Olympics, getting only the silver medal, his partner bails on him. In need of a partner, and being a total stubborn Sourwolf about the whole prospect, his coach and uncle, Peter Hale decides to go in search of one by himself. He finds Stiles Stilinski, an Omega who just so happens to work as a Stripper at one of the best gay bars around town and gives the boy an offer he can’t refuse. Peter figures that the mouthy exotic dancer would be good for his nephew. However, what he didn’t intend were for both of the wolves to not only start hating eachother, but to also have enough sexual tension in their ire to melt the whole planet’s ice rinks.

Loosely inspired by the movie Cutting Edge
Also Title is inspired by the song Big Bad Wolf by Aesthetic Perfection

All these Yuri on Ice hype makes me imagine YoI RusAme like.. 

Imperial Ivan teaching Young Adult Alfred to Figure Skating so he could be the #1 Figure Skater in USA…or even the world..


Or you can reverse their role in modern setting with Alfred as the American pro figure skater that teach figure skating to a talented figure skater young adult Ivan, a Russian immigrant that’s raised on America since he was a child..(since personality wise Viktor is more like Alfred and Yuri is more like Ivan)

…I’m fcking hopeless RusAme fan.

Summary: Nationally-ranked American figure skaters Brittany Pierce and Santana Lopez train as Olympic hopefuls. “It is fresh and it is fruitful if I win, but if I lose. Oh, I don’t know.”

Author’s Note: This chapter was made possible only by the tireless work of JJ, who has guided me here from the first idea and cheerled me even when there was nothing to cheerlead. 

Can we please talk about the fact that the skater that represents America…..
The /American/ figure skater….
Is Mexican-American?
Because I’ll be damned if nobody else thinks this is important.

Because it is.
It is very important.

Hi! Just letting you know that your "Olympics" tag isn't working. At least not on mobile! :)

i can fix that

take a step before running by magneticwave (1/1 | 7,314 | R)

Stiles wants to win for America, okay? He wants to bone that constipated expression off of Derek Hale’s face on a bed strewn with American flags while Bruce Springsteen plays in the background and a bald eagle watches through the window with a single tear rolling down its cheek.

Go For The Gold (And A Few Other Things) by SpiritsFlame (3/3 | 14,757 | R)

Stiles came to the Olympics with one goal- get a gold medal. By Opening Ceremonies, he has two goals. Win a gold medal, and sleep with Derek Hale. Unfortunately for him, those two goals are equally difficult.

Werewolves of London (2012) by likeafox (1/1 | 2,994 | G)

The thing about gymnastics is that it’s a lot of work. And time. And busted muscles, And calluses everywhere. (Yes. Even there.) And having no social life whatsoever. All that for the distinction of being really good at gymnastics. Which does not exactly bolster Stiles’s already tenuous masculinity.
The one where the teen wolfs are Olympic Gymnasts. Oops.

Winter Olympics AU- In which Hinata, a Japanese ice dancer, meets Naruto the American snowboarder

Part 1, Part 2 

“Japan.” “Japon.”

A small chorus of cheers echoed through the audience as the Japanese team began their lap through the stadium. Such cheers would not fall on deaf ears and were met with a vigorous response from the team themselves as they began their march forward. Among them, one Hinata Hyuuga felt a small surge of pride prickle through her veins. She beamed to the spectators, walking with quick, eager steps around the arena. Her cousin, Neji, walked confidently by her side, as he carried their country’s flag, which he had specifically been chosen to hold. Behind her, she could hear a couple of her countrymen singing an off-key version of ‘Kimigayo’ whilst waving enthusiastically at the spectators. She too gave a polite wave every now and again, the flashes of light from the cameras nearly blinding her as they made their circle around the field.

She had never felt more honored than this moment. To be right here, in her very first Parade of Nations, was something Hinata had only dreamt about as a little girl. To be chosen to represent her country in the biggest competition in the world set her heart aflutter and made her feel almost faint with giddiness.

Neji noticed the sweat on her brow, and politely inquired from beside her.

“Nervous?”

“A little. But…”

“But?”

“I’m very excited and very honored to be in the Olympics.”

“Aa. As am I, and I could not have asked for a better partner.”

She smiled at him. It was she who could not have asked for a better partner. Despite their rough beginnings as children, Hinata had grown very fond of her older cousin. They had become a power duo of sorts, and she was so pleased that he was by her side. She would never have been able to accomplish such a great feat without him.

She shook her head.

“I should be saying that to you.”

“Humble as always, Hinata-sama. But do not doubt yourself.”

She beamed at him once more.

“Never.”
